Intel Corp. has announced the launch of its first modular server building block products that support a server specification announced last July by the Server Systems Infrastructure (SSI) organisation.

In using these modular server building blocks, system builders can integrate computing, networking and storage capabilities in one system for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), and their needs for budget-friendly IT simplicity and flexibility. The modular server building blocks are based on Intel Multi-Flex Technology, a set of management and storage technologies developed to enable ease of use, low cost and flexibility.

When integrated by system builders into a complete server system, the Intel modular server building blocks have the ability to support up to six server compute nodes and 14 serial-attached SCSI 2.5-inch HDDs, as well as two Ethernet switch modules, integrated storage attached network and a management module. The server compute nodes support the latest quad and dual-core Intel Xeon processors in a two-socket motherboard.

For system builders, the server market represents one of the most rewarding and fast growing business opportunities. Server systems provide a unique opportunity for the channel to get closer to the core IT infrastructure of their customers, making them a more trusted partner.

Intel's endorsement of the new SSI industry specification for modular server platforms will ensure that system integrators have an opportunity to participate in the fastest growing Intel server segment?blade computing.

Intel modular server building blocks are already shipping. Pricing is available from selected Intel Channel Partners Program members.
